Writers Forum Workshop North

Title: Writers Forum Workshop (North)
Location: MadLab
Description: WFW(N) is an opportunity for innovative/experimental poets to present their work for feedback in a mutually supportive atmosphere. Ideally, please bring along copies of the work you intend to read for the other group members. Anyone who wants to come along but doesn’t want to read is also very welcome.
Start Time: 13:00
Date: 2011-09-03
End Time: 15:00




Writers Forum North is a space for poets to share and receive feedback on works-in-progress.

The poetries practiced by attendees are those usually described as ‘other’. What that means is poems involving experiments with language; poems demonstrating an awareness of both the past and future; poems which have something to say; poems which intentionally refrain from saying anything; poems which are funny; poems committed to changing the way we see the world. Also, many other kinds of poems besides…!

Anyone who wants to attend but doesn’t want to read is very welcome.

Following the reading from attendees own work meetings close with a sharing of influences and a discussion of the various poetry books currently being enjoyed by members.

Future workshop meetings could involve other activities. Writers Forum North is very much a member-led group: come along and share your ideas!

Manchesters only poetry workshop with the focus on work that doesn’t fit in the mainstream. Avant-garde techniques, humour and innovative use of language are all things that we like very much. We like work which has something to say about contemporary life yet shows an awareness of tradition.
Format of workshops will be poets reading from their work and receiving constructive feedback. It would be best if people could bring along copies of their work for the other group members to follow. It won’t be a problem if that isn’t possible though.
Anyone who wants to come along just to listen is very welcome.
